Tax Favorable Real Estate Transactions New

Course Description

The objective of this module is to teach real estate professionals how they can help their clients with the process of buying and selling property on a tax – favorable basis.

The first two lessons describe a method of real estate purchase using pre – tax dollars and of growing the estate within a qualified product. We will discuss the current tax advantages of using both qualified and non – qualified tax products such as IRAs, SEP IRAs, 401(k)s, Roth IRAs and charitable gift annuities. The use of these applications provides the real estate professional with an opportunity to create a long – standing and profitable relationship with his or her clients, as well as attracting a more sophisticated investor wishing to find an alternative to 1031 exchanges.

Lessons three and four of this module will explain the many important aspects of Internal Revenue Code Section 1031. The course will focus on the benefits of the 1031 exchange for the investor, the licensee and the other parties involved in the transaction. The student will learn which properties qualify under Section 1031 and how to use the various types of 1031 exchanges to enhance the client’s position in the investment real estate market.

The concluding lesson in this module presents real – world dilemmas and concrete applications of the information presented in the rest of the course. As the student completes this module, he or she should try to develop a broad picture of tax – favorable real estate transactions and how they fit into the larger practice of real estate. The last lesson will help with this project by presenting comprehensive content questions, practice problems and case studies.
